South of Prince Rupert: Land of the Spirit Bear.

  

Overview

Be a modern day pioneer. In this neck of the woods, directly south of Prince Rupert, it’s just you and the Salmon. Although, if you’re lucky, you may also catch a glimpse of the rare and elusive Kermode Bear (Spirit Bear): the wildest place in B.C. is home to a white black bear, as well as plentiful runs of Coho and other Salmon, and giant Chinook headed for the Skeena River. Halibut also await on the open ocean.
